Convenient Hotel In RomePosted Sep 26, 2013
Pros: Very Clean, spotless.
Location: Location was great, hotel is very small but nice and great cable selection.
I only stayed here for the night and it met my expectations. I had the single room which was very clean and the owners of the hotel were at the check-in desk were really nice. Only complaint is they did had air conditioner but no remote to turn it on which is the only way to turn on the air unit. The other complaint is that I paid the 2 euro Rome city tax when I arrived and when checking it out I had to pay again because the man at the reception did not have in his records that I paid which was very annoying. Even though its only 2 euros, its the purpose that I already paid and I had to pay again in order to leave.

Basic hotel but served our needs. Other main attractions were about 20 minutes walk away

Good value hotelPosted Sep 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location for the price. Shame about the bakery on the ground floor. Our window faced the courtyard, and we were woken at 7am every morning by continuous shouting. The room was a good size and spotless. We booked a double and got a double bed and a small single bed, which we didn't need, but might be good for people travelling with a child. Lovely hot shower with good water pressure, but very small. It wasn't a problem for us, but if you're severely overweight, you may want to stay somewhere else.

Clean room, close to vatican, AC did not workPosted Aug 5, 2013
Pros: clean, close to vatican, close to metro station.
Cons: AC should be available to guests, breakfast should be cheaper or better served.
Location: a short walk to the vatican, as well as to an indoor farmer's market an to a main shopping street. About an hour away, by foot, from the Colliseum.
I stayed in a one bed room, which was small but serviceable. The bathroom was quite large compared to other italian hotels I stayed during this trip. The staff was polite, and appreciated my attempts to speak in italian (we did not have to speak in English at all). There are only 3 things that detracted from my stay at the hotel: -The main one was that although I was there for 2 very hot days, the AC was turned off, and the remote control had been removed from my room. This meant that I had to sleep with the window open, which leads to the second problem: -The window of my room opened to an internal courtyard, which is shared by a bakery. Unfortunately, this meant that I could hear the bakers talking (loudly, of course) to one another all night long. Even with ear plugs, this was annoying. -The breakfast is very overpriced at 6 euro. For the first morning, I walked to a nearby bakery/café, where a croissant & a coffee set me back 2 euro. The morning I checked out, however, I decided to stay in to make my life easier. I was very dissapointed with the quality of the breakfast. If this hotel is well priced, it is worth the stay. It is very close to the vatican, and to a metro station (which I only used to get to and from the main train station). Walking from the hotel to the "old rome" part of town (Roman Forum, Colliseum, etc) takes about an hour to an hour and a half, but it is a nice walk.

Near the VaticanPosted Jul 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our stay was ok, the room served its purpose...had to pay 10 Euro for the ac remote but it was well worth it! Only used the room to sleep/recharge/shower. Shower was extremely small but great pressure/temperature.

"Great Location and accommodating staff" - Location is the best advantage of this hotel aside from many others. If one is tired from the site seeings, one can go back and take a nap or refresh for a while. In addition, going around other places other than in the Vatican is another advantage since the train station is just very near from the hotel. The hotel staff was very helpful every time we asked them what is the best to do. They suggested alternatives on how to go to different places and even going back to the airport. They arranged our transport when we want to roam around Rome and even to the airport. Although they are not serving breakfast before 8:00 one can avail of the cafe in the corner which serves fresh breads and coffee. For 10 euro breakfast for 3 person is not bad. On the right side of the hotel is a small Chicken restaurant (Restaurante di pollo) which is very affordable. Lunch or dinner cost us 13 to 15 euro for three person already while most restaurant charges 10 -15 per person. Most of all, I am very happy with the cleanliness of the room and the place itself. Although the towels have not been change until we left but it is ok with us as long as it is still clean. The rate per day is not that expensive compare to other in the area. All in all our experience in this hotel is great!

Nice and secure hotel very close to the VaticanPosted Jun 26, 2013
Pros: Staff were nice, helpful and bilingual. They give you a free map and directions. They can call your taxis and make reservations for local trips
Cons: Not to charge 10 Euros per day per air conditioning I paid 40 euros per air and I paid 72 euros for continental breakfast
Location: Good Location
I did not like that the hotel charge for continental breakfast 6 euros per person. I was not told about this charge until I check out. I had to pay 72 euros per continental breakfast. This was complementary at my other two Italy hotels. The hotel also charges 10 euros per air condition per day (40 euros total). I was under the impression when I signed in that the air condition and continental breakfast were included I recommend that 112 euros for continental breakfast and air conditioning be refund. In most hotel this cost are already included.

Good, but small and a bit noisyPosted May 13, 2013
Cons: Noise level!
Location: A bit far out for most of the places to see, but ideal for the vatican.
This hotel is certaintly ideally placed if you want to see the Vatican, but for pretty much anything else, it's a bit far out unless you want to take the metro everywhere (I didn't want to - I'm wary of using the metro in Rome, it being a frequent target for pickpockets and thieves). The hotel itself is small but clean. The staff were a mixed bunch - I dealt with one member of staff who was so nice and polite, spoke perfect English and was happy to help, one who spoke English but was the grumpiest, surliest man I've met, and another who seemed nice, but spoke no English at all. Luckily I know a smattering of Italian so I was able to make myself understood to her. I expected my room to be small, but that was really tiny! Next time, I'd think about enquiring after a double room with single occupancy. The rooms themselves have really thin walls - I could hear everything the couple next door were saying, and I was right over a courtyard where there was a screaming child every single night. Not so good when I'd been up at 6:30 to get to the colosseum and I wanted an early night, or a bit of a lie-in in the morning. There are plenty of places to eat in the vicinity - Ragno d'Oro is a bit more high-class (and expensive), or just around the corner there were my favourite two places to eat - Amalfi and Rende-Vous
